How do you know where to begin and end the lines of your poems? What are some of the different aesthetics for line breaks? This workshop looked at how lineation affects a poem, how various poets have upheld the integrity of the line – whether it’s short, long, or a combination of the two. The workshop included writing activities and a resource packet. Participants were asked to bring a copy of 1-2 of in-progress poems.
Ten of us met to work on lineation of poems, a subject that never gets old.
